(Ph. The Maxi Coat: Ilse De Boer By Bruno Staub for Uk Elle October 2013)

“Would you have this in XXL?”, I find myself repeatedly asking bewildered shop assistants, as I cast aside the garment of clothing they have carefully selected to suit my shape. I have always had a penchant for the oversized, you see, and if the FW13 moodboards are anything to go by, outerwear will be taking on a life of its own this season.

Let your silhouette speak volumes by pairing a figure-drowning coat (pink would do nicely too) with a demure new length skirt and a boyfriend knit. Just remember, high street and high end are foreign to each other, so you might have to size-up quite a bit if you are to capture the essence of the look. Don’t let them tell you otherwise, size matters!
